Scott Adams, the creator of the venerable office cartoon, Dilbert, believes that iPhone and devices like it (which he calls the iClones) will kill the print newspaper. If you can carry the internet in your pocket, what would you want with a print newspaper even with the new soy ink that isn’t supposed to rub off on your fingers but still does?
“When you have a web browser in your pocket, a printed newspaper is redundant,” says Adams. He further goes on to say that the articles that the newspaper will deliver (online, of course) will be filtered by the citizens and voted upon creating a more democratic version of the news. Adams believes this is a good thing. I’m a wait and see kind of girl.
